Craig, you were one of the most amazing men I have ever met in my life. The most generous and loving person ever. You were the glue that held all of us together. I will carry you with me in my heart wherever I go forever and always

Craig-thank you for all the years we spent together. Knowing that we were going to marry and spend the rest of our lives together brought me such joy, comfort and an unmeasurable amount of love. I fell in love with your heart the first time we met and unfortunately God took you leaving my heart broken. I know you are with your parents and HK blissfully enjoying yourself. I love and miss you more than I can express. You are my Angel. Love Kim

I just cannot believe that Craig is no longer with us. I know with all my heart he is in heaven sharing his hugs and radiant smile with everyone there whome he has been missing and preparing for God's mission. As difficult as his passing is for us, what a joyful eternity for him. " I love you my friend."

It was a overwhelming shock to find out Craig has passed. My prayers go out to his sisters Kathy, Linda, Sharon, brother Dave and surviving family. I first met Craig in 1987 in Cairo, Egypt. We ended up working together for the next few years. It was not hard to become a good friend of Craig. He had previously been working in Egypt and it was my first time. He made me feel welcome in a strange country away from home when you don't know anyone. He would always invite me to his house for weekend get togethers and BBQ's. When our work contract was finished in Egypt he helped me get employment in the U.S. by introducing me to the Walsh family. (I am originally from Canada). In the later years, I had been living in Key West, Craig and Kim would drive down at least once a year and alway look me up to have dinner/breakfast or just to say hello. I will miss Craig dearly as a friend knowing I will not see him again on this earth.
